Remember the post about the Webs Interchangeable knitting needle set I wrote last month? Carol bought it for me as a birthday treat! Woohoo! I can’t wait for it to come in the mail.
My mom and dad bought me a crochet hook needle set by Clover. The needles are sizes C2 – J10. The hook is made from aluminum and have ergonomically correct handles made of resin with a rubber cushion on them. They come in a cute carrying case that rolls up nice and compact… makes me want to crochet amigurumi projects.
And of course what’s a birthday without a little yarn? I treated myself to four Blue Moon Fiber Arts sock yarn using my sock club member discount.
My aunt in Korea sent me money for my birthday, but I haven’t quite decided what to do with it yet. Another knitting needle set perhaps? Some more books? Lily Chin’s Tips & Tricks books are supposed to be fabulous, or this could be a great way to get started on a collection of anigurumi books. Join a new yarn club? Buy the jumbo ball winder I’ve been coveting for years? The practical side of me says to save it for the market at Stitches West. Or on a non-knitting front – board games? the new iPod nano? Too many choices!
